Configuring your shopping cart provider
A number of different shopping cart providers can be configured within
WebPlus. These are the most commonly used and some, like PayPal®,
you may have come across directly as an eBay® customer. The
configuration process directs you to the provider's own site from where
you can sign-up as a registered user.
Use the provider's website to find out more about unique shopping cart
To set up a shopping cart provider:
From the Quick Build tab (E-commerce category), click
Commerce then click on the page to place.
From the E-Commerce Configuration dialog, you have two
options depending on whether you are an existing or new user of
one of the shopping cart providers, i.e.
If you're a new user, select a shopping cart provider by enabling
its radio button, then click the Sign Up Now button. The
provider's website is shown in a new browser window from
where you can register with the shopping cart provider.
If you're an existing user, enable the button next to your chosen
provider, and click Next>. This option simply sets the default
provider for your site (rather than set up a provider account).
The dialog is provider-specific and may show different options. As
an example, choosing PayPal lets you define (via dialog) an email
address to receive payments, cart handling charge, and use a
"Sandbox" test tool for trying out your shopping cart before going
live. Click Next>.
For Sandbox testing, click the Find Out More button to setup a
separate Sandbox login in addition to your "live" PayPal login.
